Bill Cosby's Original Chili Half-Smoke

Ben's Chili Bowl

Washington Post
The heart and soul of Washington, Ben's has been slinging chili dogs [...] since 1958.
Serious Eats
...D.C.'s signature street food...mildly smoked, natural casing beef and pork sausage [...] covered in homemade chili, onions, and mustard...some really powerful flavors...charred spicy sausage, mustard and slow-cooked chili is really incredible...[not] like a regular old chili dog...one of the nation's most unique and historically significant hot dogs.

This was created in 1958 for Bill Cosby by the owner. It was a 1/4 pound half pork and half beef smoked sausage on a bun, covered in chili. Very tasty and MASSIVE!

This was really quite overhyped and I was personally expecting much more. The chili was too salty and the bun was mediocre

Oustanding dog! It might not be on their healthy menu but is anything that's tasty ever considered healthy? :)
